What is Rooibos?
Rooibos (pronounced roy-boss) is a tea that is brewed from the leaves of the South African red bush. The leaves are dried and then crushed into a fine powder that is used to make this tea.
It’s naturally caffeine free and contains antioxidants, which means it can help boost your immune system and keep you healthy. It’s been used for centuries as a traditional herbal remedy and has recently become popular in the U.S. as an ingredient in tea blends.
Rooibos is also naturally sweet, so you don’t need to add sugar or honey. It’s great on its own or with some fresh lemon, mint leaves, or honey.
